Meaning & History

This name is a composition of the following words: GUR; Hebrew for "lion cub", SUL; which is an abbreviation of Suleman (Kurdish for king Solomon), TUR; this word is derived from the Arba'ah Turim. The Arbaáh Turim are often called simply the Tur, which is an important Halakhic code.
So, this surname doesn't have a clear meaning and has several interpretations, as: "The Codes are for The Lion Cubs of King Solomon", or just "The Lion Cubs of King Solomon" etc.
